Adoption Myth #3

Once I say "yes" I can't change my mind

You are willing to consider adoption but scared you might change your mind.  What happens then? Do you still have to go through with it? So many decisions. So much paperwork. What happens if you just can’t do it?

That’s a fair question and one you absolutely need to consider.  Here’s what you need to know:  in most states, you have anywhere from 48 to 72 hours after the birth of your child to sign the TPR (termination of parental rights).  That means, in most states, you can still change your mind following the birth of your baby.  In some states, you may even have additional time.

So, if you are willing to consider adoption, be sure to research the laws for your specific state.  While you’re at it, be sure to check out our other adoption blog posts which you can find here and here.  Many women facing an unplanned pregnancy have refused to consider adoption because they simply don’t have all the facts.  Don’t leave any stones unturned as you think through all your options, including adoption.
